    How many of you regularly use MultiRBL.valli.org? I do and I have seen (until today) 224 Blacklists run through on an IP check. Today, only 185....anybody else notice this? Who got dropped??

    It is not "224 Blacklists", it is 224 tests.

    Some blacklists test both IP address and rDNS domain. If rDNS lookup fails temporarily you'll get fewer tests.

    The total number of all active blacklists is actually 302 currently.

    checks, blacklists, whatever...I look at each one and as it seems I can get listed on SORBS for instance 3-4 times, I call it 3-4 blacklists. reguardless, I saw a big difference in the # of "whatevers" today...then it increased as if they woke up and turned their computers/blacklists "on" for the day. As I know you use this resource a lot, do you see that too?

    Most blacklist operators usually publish multiple blacklist zones for different uses. They are usually documented on their sites.
